Almost Here!

Discounted Pre-Registration will close
at 6PM on Thursday, June 18th, 2015!

As a young girl, we used to stay up all night watching the MDA Telethon. When I was old enough I volunteered and went door-to-door to raise money. Little did I know then that the MDA would become a vital part of my live. First it was for information on Charott-Marie-Tooth. We made our first visit to an MDA clinic when Carri was 3 years old. Since that time the central IL chapter of the MDA has guided me through the red tape of an IEP, (and the knowledge for what was right). Assisted us when it was time for Carri to start therapy. Directed us to those that could help us with the needed surgeries. And of course the many sets of AFO’s (leg braces). Then there is summer camp! Summers spent doing things that all kids want to do! Support from the camp buddies and other campers with advice of how to navigate those teen years and the cruelty of those that didn’t know the truth. Many fond memories and life long friends. Now we focus on the research in finding a cure. Not just for Carri’s type of muscular dystrophy, but for the 40+ different types. This is why we host this event.

Gates for registration open at 9:00am, so bring your pride and joy, tell others, bring other members of your car club! Even if you do not have a show car and want to support the MDA, please take a few minutes to stop by and enjoy the beautiful vehicles. Have lunch at Champaign Hooters as they donate a percentage of their days sales to the show. Drop some change in any of the buckets available. Make it a family day!

Other ways to help out are available as well. We still need sponsors for the 18 different classes as well as specialty awards. Raffle prizes and auction items are still needed too. Volunteers are always welcome!

Thank you to all those that have supported this show over the past 8 years! It would not be the success that it is without you!
See you all in a few days!!
